"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Magical message number 200 :cookiemonster: I'm not a genuis with figures but I believe we're 1/5 of the way toward the goal for the year. Not too bad. I love what's happening here.

Last night there was a big misunderstanding at our house about the car and who needed to be where and when. For the first time that I can remember this kind of misunderstanding lead to laughter rather than rage. I cannot say for sure why this happened but I'm sure as heck not complaining!

First the really bad news. Last night I was with some people I know who were using. Technically speaking I'm not allowed to do this. The good news is I stayed clean and can prove it if there is ever a need.

I think we should count friendly staying away from the junk as at least two positive steps. :claphands I used to hang with a guy who used. He got in so deep he it was almost impossible to get out. Today is good because my girlfriend, that's right, girlfriend, called just to see how things are going. It feels good to have someone who cares that much. I've wanted this for a while. Hope like heck I don't blow it.

Kudos to friendly. I agree with taran that its hard to resist that kind of peer pressure.:biggrin: I was something of a demented person in my early years and I used to be a big fan of Dr. Hook and the medicine show. You just don't here their music much anymore and its hard to find it in music stores. I stop in a second hand store yesterday and found one of my all time favorite albums there. I've been in second heaven listening to the music as I try to work. It reminds me of some pretty good memories before the pain became too much to bare. I guess you can second I'm working on healing my inner child.

Nothing spectacularlly good happened over the last couple of days. I've been busy just living my life, taking care of what needs to be done. Sometimes the most positive thing I can do is simply avoid self-destructing when things seem to be going good.

Jimmie, it's wonderful when you can laugh when things go kablooy.

Kudos, friendly. That's awsome.

Sounds like you are on the right track Tc.

Good deal, Taran! It does feel wonderful when someone calls just because they care.

My husband called Tuesday night just before I left for Toastmasters. One of the things he told me is that our daughter is visiting on her first leave from the Army. I told him that was terrific! That I'm sure she'll have lots of neat experiences to talk about. He asked me if I want to see her. I told him, "I would love to see her ... and it's up to her." She'll be in town for 3 weeks. I doubt if she'll call me.

When I got to the TM meeting, I sat in the parking lot for a minute, felt my pain, and shed a few tears. I debated with myself whether to stay for the entire meeting or not. I'm so glad that I did stay. The meeting was a lot of fun. I felt so much better when I left. I am still dealing well with the situation today.

I know in my heart that someday she will ressurect me (she's told me that I'm dead and that she doesn't have a mother). Until she's ready, I must be strong.

Cheers!
Life

Life - Take care of yourself - I'm sure that one day your daughter will want to make contact again.

The anthology that I have been working on is back from the binder's today. The people I am doing it for wanted it for tomorrow (they moved the date forward by a week) and at 3pm this afternoon, it was still not ready - but I just spoke to the printer and he has got the copies and will drop them off to me tonight. Hooray!!

Its awfully early, and I have a full day of work ahead. :shocked: Did someone say coffee. There's a full pot brewing and more where that came from. For some reason I feel an energy to face this day with the best possible attitude and finish this work so there is time to play.

Two mornings running I have woken up feeling calm and reasonably positive. I have started therapy and finally feel that it may be possible to turn things around.
